About florence

We fell in love with the Algarve 35 years ago and have returned every year and always dreamed of buying a property one day. We are very familiar with the west coast and have seen it develop over the years. When it came to the location we decided on the Eastern Algarve and found that Tavira retained the essence of the real Algarve, a charming historic roman town. We were thrilled to find such a unique luxury private condominium with incredibly spacious accommodation 242 sq mts, including a huge roof terrace with mountain and pool view, with access to the romantic square in the town centre 5 mins away. We have furnished it to a luxury standard and do everything possible to ensure the comfort of our guests. We offer a meet and greet service included and ,additional guest services inc airport transfers and food packs etc

We noW have wi fi and BBC/ITV PLUS CH4/5 ETC channels on TV

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We were concerned about the 120steps down to the Centre after Reading a previous review as we had aBaby of 10months and thought it might be difficult with his pram but it wasn't aproblem but would be for Wheelechair users and should be mentioned on the property details also our TV did not work for the duration of our stay George the maintenance man did come to try and fix it but couldn't and we were told he would return but didn't and when we rang to let Rachael know of a couple of other small concerns she told us that he would call in that day to rectify our problems so one of our party stayed in the Apartment awaiting him but he didn't arrive? Also the Mattress on the Baby cot which we had to pay Extra for was not of Good Quality much too thin! Overall we had a nice stay and would return

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

A brilliant holiday! We are a family of 5 (3 children aged 11 to 15) and this villa was ideal for us. With the terrace opening out on to the pool area we were all able to relax and enjoy the lovely pool (which was clean, large and the perfect temperature) or sunbathe on the terrace. Plenty of room in the villa and very well equipped plus a pleasant 10 minute stroll into Tavira; a beautiful town offering lovely restaurants and plenty to see and do in the evenings. Our arrival and departure were dealt with wonderfully by Rachel and Janet who were more than helpful and provided plenty of information about the local area and beautiful beaches. I would highly recommend this villa - we would love to visit again.

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two week stay from 21 may to 4 June in this apartment. We had been to the complex in 2013 and found it a lovely, quiet and relaxing spot. The grounds are well maintained and the pool lovely. This particular apartment was perfectly located for our family of 5 - mum, dad and boys age 4, 2 and 6 months. The apartment is positioned in front of the kiddies shallow pool which meant the boys could splash in the water, mum and dad could sit in the garden and watch, while listening to baby snoozing in the house! Perfect! Apartment is very well equipped and beautifully furnished. We used the BBQ most nights which was excellent and easy for a young family. Tavira itself is a lovely town. We went out for crepes, sangrias and ice creams, a trip on the tourist train and a wander through the shops. We had a car which was great for big supermarket trips to continente however we only used approx €30 petrol for the whole two weeks so you could manage without as it's only a ten minute journey to walk!! It was a very relaxing holiday and apart from a few trips to the beach and nearby towns, most of the holiday was spent by the pool in the sun! Highly recommend - especially for young families!!

May sunshine

  • 4 of 5

This was a first holiday with our 10 month-old granddaughter and her parents.

The ground-floor townhouse had a small private terrace in front of the grassed area around the swimming pool - a perfect location for sunbathing along with childcare!

The house was cool, well-appointed and had loads of space; a special feature was two top-floor sun terraces providing good views and a lovely situation for evening meals.

The equipment was very good, with top-grade appliances.

The "Meet and Greet" service offered on our arrival was first-class and we felt welcomed and well-briefed on the house, its surroundings in the condominium and the local town Tavira.

We enjoyed several lunches out in Tavira's restaurants where we, and especially our granddaughter, were made very welcome.

I would recommend this property for a super holiday for couples wanting a little luxury as well as a family needing plenty of space and access to a good pool on site.
